Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Pours a deep brown, almost black hue with a thick, long lasting, frothy, slight of white head. Aromas of toast, chocolate, with a dry, pleasant hoppy/ cleaning agent smell.... interesting. mouth feel is edium bodied with flavors of coffee, pine, citrus and a touch of vanilla and roasted nuts. Pretty hoppy for the style.

Elwood (3046) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Serving: 500 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours black with a large, creamy, dark tan head. The nose is rather mute save slight cocoa powder notes. The flavor has light roast, bakers chocolate, and light mineral notes with a slightly chalky mouthfeel. Medium to full bodied with a lingering roasted malt finish. Quite enjoyable.

MaBeer1972 (1279) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Bottle from Julios. Pours out a very dark brown color. Thick, foamy tan head. Complex, malty aromas. Flavor is superbly balanced. Lots of layers of chocolate, slight bit of vanilla with a nice bitterness on the backside. Super smooth. Velvety and not fizzy. Goes down like a glass of chocolate milk! I am not a big stout and porter fan, but this is top notch!
